Diarrhea is considered the primary symptom of norovirus infection. As such, individuals suffering from this disease are asked not to drink fluids with lots of sugars, as it can make their diarrhea worse. Caffeine, soda, chocolates, and alcohol are also known to irritate the bowel and aggravate diarrhea.
Apart from bouts of diarrhea, one of the most common symptoms associated with norovirus infection is vomiting. This makes individuals suffering from this disease more prone to dehydration, especially those with weak immune system.
To help reduce vomiting, Mayo Clinic suggests having small, bland meals distributed all throughout the day. Starches and cereals, such as noodles, potatoes, and crackers, are advised to help limit vomiting. Soup, yogurt, banana, and broiled vegetables are also known to relieve nausea.
